That is terrible work, should be torn down and done over.
Can you imagine that section collapsing 8 years down the road.....crikey....what a liability.
Hopefully these pictures or some like them will make it to where it counts and either heads will roll or the work will be done over correctly—
I bet that the contractor didn't do a slump test on that batch of concrete.
Is that anything like the pencil test on boobs???
Yes, but even boobs that fail the pencil test can still be totally awesome.
Added in edit: Maybe I should not post after having a martini.
I think it was the perfect time to post it!
You know Lurk, there are sooo many people out there right now that are asking “what’s the pencil test “—
Can they use the huge pencils that we used in kindergarten?
Only if it’s huge boobies—
If we all email Stricklin at the above, perhaps he will reply publicly or at least in an email.
Are we emailing SS about the pencil test or the slump test? Maybe the contractor was busy with pencil tests at the time?
We "place" cast in place concrete
We "cast" precast concrete that brought to the site or moved within the site
Either way, that's some pour @ss work. Sad because the majority of contractors selected for UF projects are alumni lol.
I propose we email SS about both the slump test and the pencil test. Both answers would be very telling about his knowledge on the subjects.
great idea Matt go ahead and do that and let us know what SS has to say...........
Government bids always goes cheaper
I like using the word "pour" for "poor" in this context. Well done!
Call it "place" or call it "cast" for cast in place. I don't care. Be that as it may the concrete should not be a soupy mess that is poured into place.
And that needs to be knocked down and done correctly. There has to be a building inspector for this job and they need to see this before a patch is applied in an attempt to hide it.
"What's a pencil test?"
Does it have anything to do with my grandpa saying "She's got arthritis!"??? (With hands held mostly open palmed chest high) HA
Who is providing CEI duties?
